The Government's approach to the drugs problem is embedded by in the broad social inclusion framework outlined in the various social partnership arrangements, and this approach will be reflected in the National Drug Strategy currently being framed. The key objectives of the current strategy and the basic principles that underlie this strategy are outlined. The role of the Local Drug Task Forces and the Young People's Facilities and Services Fund in this overall strategy are explained. The institutional mechanisms, involving several individual government departments and various inter-departmental committees, are described. The section on budget and funding arrangements provides details of the funding to support the drugs initiative and social inclusion measures under the National Development Plan 2000-2006.
